June J. Jacobs and Gwen Klypak: Time Layered

January 24 to March 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, January 24 at 8 p.m.

Using traditional techniques including weaving, felting, dyeing, crochet, and embroidery, Gwen Klypak’s layered works combine contrasting forms with structural and surface design embellishments. Informed by personal experience, her textile artworks contemplate the intimate relationship between the human body and the passage of time. She pursues her study and experimentation with the woven grid from her Saskatoon-area acreage. June J. Jacobs has exhibited her fibre works nationally and internationally. She lives and works in Meacham, where she owns and operates the Hand Wave Gallery. For more than 30 years, Jacobs has made sustained contributions to the fine craft community as a mentor, educator, and organizer.
